Chris Sale tossed eight shutout innings against the Giants on Tuesday. He gave up four hits and two walks while striking out 12 but settled for the no-decision after the bullpen blew the lead in the ninth.
There's so much to love about owning Sale in fantasy leagues and the security that he brings you every time he steps onto the mound is something every owner covets. Not only has Sale maintained a 2.01 ERA over 19 starts this season, but his 150:24 K:BB over 140 innings allows him to boost you in every pitching category but saves. We're probably just spinning our wheels here telling you great things that you should already know, so we'll just say enjoy the ride and he should have another dominant performance his next time out when he faces the Blue Jays.
